The United Evermore Government of GlobalControl is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Adrian Potrinko with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.61 billion Emoreans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hyperia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Emorean economy, worth a remarkable 2,455 trillion Alden Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 211,493 Alden Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, the "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. GlobalControl's national animal is the Rose Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roses of Kal'kiara.

GlobalControl is ranked 157,691st in the world and 11th in Steam Islands for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -23.02 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
